Last Newsletter of 2020-2021: I hope your family has a rejuvenating summer! Really looking forward to coming back full time Fall of 2021. Please feel free to contact Mr. Pease over the summer for any reason (503- 256-6511)!


  • Yearbook: The 2020-2021 Yearbooks are on sale now! You can buy it online with a credit/debit card or at school with cash or check. The yearbook will be in color and will cost $20. What a memorial year! Get yours to preserve it forever! Here is the link to the yearbook purchasing. https://commpe.pictavo.com/

  • Covid 19 Vaccine: The Oregon Health Authority is now providing Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and older. The Oregon Convention Center is now open for FREE vaccinations: you can walk in without an appointment or you can schedule an appointment through the Student-based Health Center on the David Douglas High School campus.

Or to schedule your own appointment, see operating hours and get additional information at: https://all4oregon.org/

Students ages 12-14 must be accompanied by either a parent, a guardian, or someone designated by the parent. If accompanied by an adult other than a parent, a student must have a parent-signed consent form.

In addition, you can also schedule and receive free vaccines at most Walgreens, Safeway or Fred Meyer.

We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to get vaccinated. The only way to fully end our pandemic restrictions is for at least 70 percent of all eligible people to get fully vaccinated.

There will also be a Covid 19 Vaccination Clinic Right here at Floyd Light on July 6 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM for 12 and over. Family must accompany 12 – 14-year-olds.
